In the Brooder
- Jul 18, 2013
I poly their entire cage.The roof is always covered yearround with metal roofing.They need to be outside now to ensure they will produce the down that keeps them warm thru the winter months.You get much happier and healthier birds raising them outside.The aviary they live in is 6'x12'x8'.Thanks for the info. My nesting box has a lip for the entry but its only about an inch. Is that a big enough lip? If not how big should the lip be?
You say your birds live outside year round? What has to be done for them to survive the winter outside?
